In a heartfelt announcement on social media, Tri-State Repair Service, Inc. has announced that it will be closing its doors for good after proudly serving the community for over 53 years. The decision to cease operations comes in the wake of the passing of the company's beloved owner, Bob Wheeler, in May.

The company has pledged to remain operational during its final days, although the official closing date remains uncertain.
